The paper with water in it coming out unscathed after being over a flame for minutes was actually quite amazing. Cute gopher. Watch for the retrace lines right at the end when the screen goes black, a common thing seen on old television sets.

The weakest SIA in the series in my opinion, but still has it's moments. I liked the endless endless experiments in this one, and since I havent commented on it before, the way Dr Earl folds his harm over his waist while holding the other one whose hand is on Dr Earl's chin (you'll know what I mean). The Animal of the week is of all things, a GOPHER. Some little tyke comes on and doesnt say much, and neither does Dr Earl really. Slightly bizarre moment comes when he shows the dead stiff gophers in front of the real thing.
